New Wave of Old Wave

Recommended Posts

I love Eliot Easton's solos. Underappreciated!

 

Oh man he's superb!

One of my all time favs and so creative given the time constraints of the 3plus minute pop song context he played in.

 

Along with Neil Giraldo ( Pat Benatar's hubby and guitar wiz) my 2 favorite players during the late 70s.msp_thumbup.gif

Good call. Neil is hugely underrated as well! Tasty stuff.

People who know me are always a little surprised when they hear I'm such a big Cars fan. Since they aren't the hard, bluesy rock that I usually like. I've always loved Elliot E's playing and tone. I really like the drums in a lot of Cars tunes too. The snare falls on some interesting beats, not just on the 2 and 4 count.

 

Some of their lyrics are a little odd, though :-k. Take the song "Touch and Go". Maybe I just have a dirty mind, but that song always seemed a little kinky to me [blush]

 

But, I generally prefer Ben Orr's songs over Ric Ocasic's. Hopefully this will be a good album.

Love the Cars...their first album was the first record I ever memorized completely! Who else writes this stuff?

 

I'm In Touch With Your World

 

You can tuck it on the inside

You can throw it on the floor

You can wave it on the outside

Like you never did before

You get the diplomatic treatment

You get the force fed future

Get the funk after death

Get the wisenheimer brainstorm

 

(I’m in touch with your world)

So don’t you try to hide it

(I’m in touch with your world)

And nobody’s gonna buy it

It’s such a lovely way to go

It’s such a lovely way to go

 

I been lying on your feathers

You keep talkin’ about the weather

I’m a psilocybin pony

You’re a flick fandango phoney

It’s a sticky contradiction

It’s a thing you call creation

Everything is science fiction

And I ought to know

 

(I’m in touch with your world)

So don’t you try to hide it

(I’m in touch with your world)

And nobody’s gonna buy it

It’s such a lovely way to go

It’s such a lovely way to go-uh-o-o-o

 

(I’m in touch with your world)

(I’m in touch with your world)

(I’m in touch with your world)

(I’m in touch with your world)
